Abstract [en]

How do archives employ narratives and storytelling to curate access to their digitized collections? Drawing on the results of my research project “The Cultural Heritage of the Moving Image” (2016-2018), this paper examines how film archives recontextualise and contemporize historical content online, how they reflect upon it and how they cope with legal constraints and ethical considerations. It presents findings from studying the processes of regulation according to which some stories become ‘acknowledgeable’ while others are not recognized. This paper discusses how archives can foreground archival social inequalities as a result of collection policies, colonial representations or metadata management. It will look at ways of reflecting on hegemonic power structures in the curation of online content. The cases, looking especially at issues of race, class and sexuality, stem from both national film archives and ‘minor archives’, such as grass-root or community archives. Among these are ‘The BFI Player’, the online portal of the British Film Institute, and the Swedish website ‘Filmarkivet.se’, which has created access to some of the digitized collections from the Swedish National Film Archives, administered by the Swedish Film Institute (SFI) and the Royal Library (KB), as well as the Lesbian Home Movie Project (Maine) and bildwechsel, based in Hamburg.
